Why can't a man get a fair shot as a receptionist in a doctor's of Dentist's office?

I've been told flat out, " we only hire women" on more than one occasion. So how is this equal opportunity? Why are the tables tilted so that a man can't get a fair shake in the role of a secretary, receptionist, or book keeper? This is rather silly, as many men can certainly handle the job, and perform fine, but it is very rare that you see a guy at the desk when you go to the doctor, dentist, optometrist. How is that fair? I get that these positions come with a modest salary, and we're not shooting for the stars here, but a man with qualifications would more than likely be passed up for any modestly cute woman with no qualifications at all. For that matter, how can Hooters get away with only hiring women as servers? -Not that I really want a dude as my server at that restaurant, but this double standard keeps many a man from being able to find work. Yes, the average corporate woman makes less than a man, but let's face it, the majority of guys and gals aren't corporate tycoons. Seems to me just another damned double-standard.
